Bombing the whole line?! You are a better caster than I sir!Definitely not a fast action compared to most but I think people have gotten obsessed over a “fast” rod. I’d call the Tidal moderately fast. I have no problem bombing out the whole line with it but let’s be honest, that’s not realistic in fishing. I’ve got no problem putting it out there where I want it at 60’ with just one or two false casts.
I have also heard good things about the Sage Maverick.I know this topic has been beat up a lot but I’ve been throwing a reddington path 8wt for a few years and I’m ready to step it up. I love gloomis all my inshore spinning rods are gloomis but I’m not ready to drop $900. I was looking is the imx pro but that seems like it’s more built for freshwater. Anyone have a good review on this rod on how it would compare to the echo prime 2, reacon 2, or other mid price rods? Primarily for Tampa redfish and snook.
